Investigative journalist and author, Conchita Sarnoff, discusses the Jeffrey Epstein pedophile ring cover up with film director and producer, Sean Stone.
A woman contacted Palm Beach police and alleged her 14-year-old daughter had been taken to billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion by an older girl and paid $300 after stripping and massaging him. She was one of dozens of underage girls recruited as a pedophile sex slave ring by Epstein, but an ‘army of legal superstars’ persuaded prosecutors to sign a controversial and unprecedented agreement that reduced what an attorney for some of Epstein’s victims said could have put Epstein away for 33 life sentences and he only got 18 months in prison and 18 months of house arrest. Epstein, the former Bear Stearns executive had many high-profile and political connections with frequent visits from close-friend Bill Clinton and Prince Charles, both named in the lawsuit to have had sex with minors. The plea deal was sealed for months and Epstein’s lawyers fought to keep it from being made public which may have given both Clinton and Prince Andrew protection from prosecution, it is claimed.
Highly-paid lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein – some of whom had links to the White House – secured an extraordinary deal which guaranteed ‘potential co-conspirators’ would not face criminal charges relating to his activities.
They had spent months delving into the private lives of state prosecutors to establish if they had any ‘personal peccadilloes’, in a desperate bid to defend Epstein against claims of abusing scores of under-age girls at his Florida mansion.
The aggressive tactics culminated in an extraordinary ‘non-prosecution agreement’ being struck between Epstein and prosecutors in September 2007. This halted any prospect of Andrew being asked to answer questions on oath about his paedophile friend’s antics. The agreement states: ‘The United States agrees that it will not institute any criminal charges against any potential co-conspirators of Epstein, including but not limited to Sarah Kellen, Adriana Ross, Lesley Groff or Nadia Marcinkova.’
Many serious charges against Epstein and any ‘co-conspirators’ were wiped out, in return for the billionaire pleading guilty to the relatively minor charge of soliciting an under-age girl for prostitution. After the accord had been signed, his lawyers fought to ensure it remained secret.
They bombarded the US Attorney’s office in Florida with hundreds of pages of legal argument intended to prove that Epstein’s victims did not have any legal right to know a plea agreement had been struck.
According to official documents, Epstein’s attorney Jay Lefkowitz – a former deputy director of domestic policy at the White House under George W Bush – sent a one-line email to the US Attorney’s Office on September 24, 2007: ‘Please do whatever you can to keep this from becoming public’.
On November 29, 2007, Lefkowitz called for more secrecy in a letter to the Florida state attorney: ‘We don’t understand the basis for your Office’s belief that it is appropriate for any letter to be sent to these individuals at this stage – before Mr Epstein has either entered a plea or been sentenced.’
Lefkowitz disputed the suggestion that the victims had the right to be heard at any plea or sentencing, adding: ‘Encouraging these individuals to participate in the state sentencing will have the effect of creating a media frenzy that will surely impact the sentence Mr Epstein received – precisely what your Office promised to avoid.’
Critics claim the deal was a scandalous cover-up – supported by the political establishment – to protect Epstein and his influential circle of friends. R Alexander Acosta, the US Attorney for Southern Florida, who signed off on the non-prosecution agreement, has told of the aggressive tactics employed.
In an open letter on the case four years ago, Mr Acosta said Epstein had ‘hired an army legal superstars’, citing Lefkowitz and Kenneth Starr – lead prosecutor against President Clinton in the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He added: ‘The defence strategy was not limited to legal issues. Defense counsel investigated individual prosecutors and their families, looking for personal peccadilloes that might provide a basis for disqualification. Defense counsel tried to disqualify at least two prosecutors.’
Mr Acosta said that ‘some may feel that the prosecution should have been tougher, adding: ‘Evidence that has come to light since 2007 may encourage that view. Many victims have since spoken out, filing detailed statements in civil cases seeking damages. Physical evidence has since been discovered. Had these additional statements and evidence been known, the outcome may have been different.’
Epstein’s treatment during his year in prison, where he is reported to have had an easy ride, ‘undermined the purpose of a jail sentence’ and may ‘encourage the view’ that prosecutors should have been ‘tougher’ with him, Mr Acosta said.
Despite these comments, questions remain over why he and fellow US prosecutors agreed to provide a blanket immunity to men and women who had allegedly been involved in Epstein’s crimes. The disgraced financier has spent huge amounts of time, effort and money making sure there is no evidence to implicate third parties.
The potential co-conspirators who have been named publicly have all kept quiet. Former model Adriana Ross, who is referred to in the non-prosecution agreement, refused to answer any questions, including some about Prince Andrew, when deposed by lawyers representing Epstein’s victims.
Other key friends in his circle were equally reticent when asked on oath about his activities. If the allegations against any famous public figures are true, the agreement means the US government has provided them with an extraordinary get-out-of-jail free card.
Experts in criminal law in America still question how Epstein’s legal team pulled off the deal that saw him avoid a jail sentence of ten to 20 years. Possibly the most critical question is whether the FBI was aware of any allegations involving Prince Andrew when the non-prosecution agreement was signed.
Buckingham Palace refuses to comment on whether the prince has ever been interviewed by the FBI – even as a witness – over Epstein’s liaisons with young girls.
Epstein was released in July 2009. In recent days, there have been claims that the prince lobbied on behalf of his disgraced friend for a reduced jail term.
This has been denied by Buckingham Palace. A royal official said: ‘The duke would never interfere in an active legal case and did not do so in this case.’
But more than a year after his release from jail, Epstein was pictured walking in New York’s Central Park with Andrew – a show of loyalty from the prince which has repercussions to this day.
Why did a convicted billionaire pedophile named Jeffrey Epstein that pimped out underage girls to powerful men have 21 contact phone numbers for Bill Clinton?
And why did Clinton fly on “multiple occasions” to the private Caribbean island where Epstein regularly held wild sexual orgies? Let me give you a hint: it was not to discuss politics over milk and cookies. Every once in a while, we get a small peek into the twisted sexual world of the global elite. In this case, a Florida lawsuit that alleges that Britain’s Prince Andrew had sex with a 17-year-old “sex slave” provided by Epstein is making headlines all over the planet. But of potentially even greater importance is what this lawsuit is revealing about Bill Clinton. If it can be proven that Bill Clinton had sex with underage girls provided by Jeffrey Epstein, that could potentially destroy any chance that Hillary Clinton has of winning the presidency in 2016.
The 17-year-old girl that Prince Andrew is alleged to have had sex with is named Virginia Roberts. She is claiming that she once received $15,000 for having sex with him…
A teenage “sex slave” says she was paid $15,000 for bedding Britain’s Prince Andrew by the American billionaire who served as the royal’s procurer.
Virginia Roberts was 17 when Wall Street honcho and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein allegedly pimped her out to the prince.
“A lot of powerful men were part of Jeffrey’s scene, but I specifically remember Andrew,” Roberts told Britain’s Daily Mail.
And it is a fact that Jeffrey Epstein is a convicted sex offender. He was convicted by a court of law for paying a 14-year-old girl 300 dollars to massage him and have sex with him…
Epstein’s sexual exploits have been documented since 2005, when a woman in Palm Beach contacted police saying that her 14-year-old daughter had been paid $300 to massage him and then have sex.
The claim prompted a nearly year-long investigation that led to the eventual charge of soliciting prostitution which came as part of a plea deal. He spent 13 months of a 18-month sentence in jail and remains a registered sex offender.
Since that time, approximately 40 other women have accused Epstein of sexual misconduct.
So needless to say, this is one very sick individual.
And right now the mainstream media in the U.S. is largely ignoring the fact that Bill Clinton flew down to Epstein’s private Caribbean island on “multiple occasions” between 2002 and 2005. The following is from a British news source…
Over the years, the casually-dressed, globe-trotting financier, who was said to log more than 600 flying hours a year, has been linked with Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker and Manhattan-London society figure Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late media titan Robert Maxwell.
Epstein reportedly flew Tucker and Spacey to Africa on his private jet as part of a charitable endeavour. Clinton, meanwhile, flew on multiple occasions in the same plane to Epstein’s private Caribbean island, Little St James, between 2002 and 2005 as he developed his philanthropic post-presidential career. It would later be alleged in court that Epstein organised orgies on that same private island in the US Virgin Islands.
A lot of Democrats are going to end up reading this article, and a lot of them are going to start making apologies for Clinton at this point.
So let’s get one thing straight. It is not okay for anyone to have sex with underage girls. Whoever breaks the law by doing so deserves to go to prison. That includes Bill Clinton if it can be proven that he did this.
And without a doubt, Clinton and Epstein were very close. In fact, court records show that Epstein had 21 different phone numbers for Clinton…
While Clinton was never deposed, lawyers obtained Epstein’s computerized phone directory, which included “e-mail addresses for Clinton along with 21 phone numbers for him, including those for his assistant (Doug Band),” according to a court filing.
In addition, Epstein had contact information for a whole host of other powerful politicians and celebrities…
From his 97-page ‘black book’ of phone numbers and email addresses, it is clear Epstein had an impressive array of contacts.
When its contents were disclosed three years ago, the book was shown to include contact details for former US President Bill Clinton, ex-secretary of state Henry Kissinger, and Barbara Walters, then one of America’s most influential broadcasters.
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s details are there, along with entrepreneur Donald Trump, members of the Kennedy family and former prime minister Tony Blair.
If this scandal is not covered up, it could eventually bring down a lot of people.
What makes things even worse for Bill Clinton (and others) is that Epstein apparently used hidden cameras to record the sexual trysts that were going on in his guest bedrooms. The following is from an article that appeared in the Mirror…
Prince Andrew’s tycoon pal may have taken compromising photos of him with the underage girl he is alleged to have abused.
Details buried in original court papers filed against pervert Jeffrey Epstein, 61, reveal that he recorded the sordid orgies he threw for VIPs at his luxury homes using cameras hidden in the walls of guest bedrooms.
So if Bill Clinton did commit a crime, somewhere there may actually be video of it.
But wait, there’s even more to this story. The following comes from the Daily Mail…
The lawsuit claims that Clinton was friends with an unnamed woman who ‘kept images of naked underage children on her computer, helped to recruit underage children for Epstein… and photographed underage females in sexually explicit poses‘.
While he cut off ties with Epstein, this woman’s abuses apparently did not end their relationship as she was reportedly one of the 400 guests at Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding.
Though the lawsuit may be bringing up sexual skeleton’s from Clinton’s past, he has added to the drama of late by posing for a photo with two known prostitutes at a fundraiser in Los Angeles last month.
Obviously Bill Clinton has a lot of hard questions that he needs to answer.
But if Bill Clinton cannot be charged with a crime, will the American people even care what else he did?
After all, there is a long history of the American people being willing to overlook his sexual promiscuity.
For example, in a book published last year entitled “The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents“, it was documented that one of Clinton’s latest girlfriends known as “the Energizer” sometimes brought cookies to the Secret Service agents that guard Bill…
Energizer, who is described as charming and friendly, sometimes brought cookies to the agents, according to the book excerpts.
One told Kessler: “It was a warm day, and she was wearing a low-cut tank top, and as she leaned over, her breasts were very exposed. They appeared to be very perky and very new and full … There was no doubt in my mind they were enhanced.”
Kessler also reports that Hillary’s Secret Service detail informs Bill’s Secret Service detail when the former first lady is coming home, so Bill has time to get Energizer off the property and clean up any evidence.
TrafficKing is a non fiction account of the longest running human trafficking case in U.S. legal history that extends from Harvard University to The White House. See video of author discussing the case at the top of this article.
The book begins this way. If you search for the names “Epstein” and “Starr” together, the first two that come up are Brian, the manager, and Ringo, the drummer, of the Beatles, who made beautiful music, a wonderful contribution to society. The next two in line have contributed nothing to society but grief. They are: Jeffrey, a degenerate paedophile, and Kenneth, possibly the slimiest excuse for a lawyer ever who escaped being disbarred. Bill Clinton murdered his deputy White House counsel, Vince Foster, in 1993. Starr, asked to investigate, had two separate opportunities to expose the murder and put Clinton away for good. In one case he chose to suppress the evidence and in the other, he chose to look the other way. Instead he issued a report based entirely on lies, which he knew were lies, that Foster had committed suicide. Epstein, a multi-millionaire, not only molested girl children himself at a prodigious pace but pimped large numbers of victims to a wide circle of acquaintances from his social class. There was enough evidence from one venue alone to lock him up, if not for good, for a minimum of 20 years. Starr insinuated himself into the case. Of course his job is to get the best result for his client. But the method he employed with his associates, trampling on the rights of the victims, was unheard of and indefensible. Epstein got a slap on the wrist, no more time than a hungry man might get for stealing a loaf of bread, and was enabled to spend much of his sentence at home and never have to mix with the general population in the county jail where he was housed. Epstein owned an island in the inappropriately named Virgin Islands. Others referred to his property appropriately as Orgy Island. He transported his friends there or on lengthy jaunts round the world on his private jet which became known as “the Lolita Express.” One of the passengers on the Lolita Express on several occasions was Bill Clinton, after he left office. That Starr was enabled to damage the very fibre of society in America twice is inexplicable. This sort of thing you might expect to happen in a place like Kazakhstan. If anyone wants to make a movie out of the life of Starr, they would not have to do any more than a new version of Borat. Clinton’s disgraceful life remains relevant because his wife, the Hildabeast, is running for president. If she wins she will be taking with her into the White House not only a murderer and a rapist, but also now as it seems certain, a paedophile. That’s the message that will go out to the world, in America the rich and powerful can get away with anything. And we haven’t even talked about the incredible sums stolen by this couple during their lengthy criminal careers. I knew about Epstein when I did a book on the Foster murder entitled “Vince Foster And The Hildabeast.” But since he had no relevance to the murder cover-up engineered by Clinton, I didn’t mention him. What prompted me to do this book were two reasons. Starr was involved with Epstein and so what he did with him goes to his character and strengthens the conclusion that this is a man who is unprincipled, ruthless, imprudent, and a menace to society. The second reason is that the Hildabeast crowd was not willing to leave well enough alone. Before the book on the Foster murder was even published in digital by Amazon and I had been notified that the US page was up and current, someone came in and bought one. I asked Amazon how could that possibly be and they replied it was a matter of “latency.” What that means I don’t know except that they were surmising that the US page was up some time before I got the notice. Obviously the buyer was someone who worked at Amazon and or was tipped off by someone who worked at Amazon. It gave the Hildabeast operatives an opportunity to post a crushing one-star review days before I had even introduced the book to the public. The reviewer claimed that my book was “trash fiction” which is what the suicide hoax was.
